About Hepatitis B
Chronic Hepatitis B (CHB) is a global public health issue. If left untreated, CHB can cause serious health problems, like scarring of the liver and liver damage. According to CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), an estimated 862,000 people in the U.S. are chronically infected with the Hepatitis B Virus. An infected mother can pass it to her baby at birth.
